So 400 Euros both ways and that makes traveling by car with 4 people in it, more economical from a cost perspective, since I get roughly 30-35mpg on my Honda.
For some reason I thought public transit was less expensive in Europe. You could get a Greyhound bus ticket for trip that distance for around $20 per person if you booked far enough in advance, which would add up to $80 each way for four people. I'm hoping autonomous buses will bring that price down even more.
